I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.
There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.
The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
I cannot speak well enough to be unintelligible.
It sometimes happens that a woman is handsomer at twenty-nine than she was ten years before.
